On the February 27th , 2014, ten members of the association, headed by Ming Qi, the director of Foreign Affairs Office of Japanese Giant Panda Protection Association, came to Ya’an Bifeng Gorge Base of China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda and held a simple residential ceremony for baby pandas who were born in 2013.
In that early morning, the eleven people from Japanese Giant Panda Protection Association arrived at Ya’an Bifeng Gorge Base and set out to do voluntary activities. After a concise train by volunteers’ centre, they cleaned the houses and fed the pretty giant pandas in the new breeding area, under the direction of breeders.
At 3 p.m., they held a brief residential ceremony at the entrance of the kindergarten for baby pandas, introducing the baby pandas who were born last year. Ming Qi on behalf of Japanese Giant Panda Protection Association made a concise speech and extended New Year wishes and greetings to the staff of China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda and our giant pandas.
After that, they planted bamboos representing love for baby pandas on an open field.
The occasional drizzles couldn’t let them down, and they entrusted their love for giant pandas to these bamboos, wishing baby pandas healthy growth.
In the afternoon on 28th, association members had to say goodbye to beloved giant pandas and visited the Dujiangyan Disease Control Center accompanied by the club staff.
This is the sixth residential ceremony for giant panda cubs held by Japanese Giant Panda Protection Association. Non-governmental communication promotes the development of giant pandas’ conservation and bilateral friendship.
